SMART Monday

In case you haven't heard, there is big news in the Catblogosphere this week.  My good furriend Fin and her mom have finally published her book and you can find it here.  I think this is just the coolest news ever, but I got concerned.  I mean I can count on my mom to get it and read it to me, but I want more.  If my pal Fin can write a book, I want to read it myself.  So I have to get busy.  It's time to Start Making A Reader out of Cory Today!

Mom got me my first reader so I can practice and be ready for when Fin's book arrives. I think it works well to scratch the little itch I have on my face.

I think something is missing.  I think mom is supposed to put Tillamook Cheese in the little red bowl to motivate me to read.
Uh, maybe I can just have mom read me Fin's book.  This might take awhile.

My human eats while she's reading stuff on the computer all the time - that is proof that you need food to be able to read! But maybe it's easier to just have your human read Fin's book to you anyway.

My Mum is going to read me Fin's book this weekend - I'll just look at the lovely pictures of Finny!

Cat said...

Cool!!! Thanks for telling us about that book! Mom has taught us to tell time, but we pretend that we don't understand - though we do. We know that dinner is when the clock looks like it has a line down the middle of it (dinner o'clock we call it!!). But we haven't yet learned to READ words. Maybe she will try to teach us. Have a great day! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny (Weezdabadcats)

That is a very neat book about learning to read. Wow - a book with a built in food bowl!

We're waiting till Fin does her audiobook...

Kea said...

We think it's probably easier for your mom to read the book to you. :-)

Last week we looked for Fin's book on Amazon.ca, but it wasn't there. We're hoping it sells in Canada too!

Well, Cory.. a little bit at a time... A little bit of cheese, a letter or two.....

Furkidsmom said...

We think you just need more CHEESE!

Awwwww ... mom said this post brought back bittersweet memories that made her tearful. She had one of these "Teach yoor cat to read" kits when her beloved siamese cat Henry was alive. He used to love to learn a noo word each day as he eated his brekkie. He was a very clever boy and mom still misses him a lot.

We agree ~ we fink Tillamook cheese wud be a very good incentive for yoo.

violinmuffin said...

You're so clever, learning to read.
Our mummy will hopefully be able to get hold of Fin's book in Australia!!!

Forever Foster said...

Yep, having it read to you sounds like a much easier option ;)

umi_e said...

great news!

We would like to have that book too!

Parker said...

If there is no cheese, there is no reading!

The Creek Cats said...

What a great idea, Cory!

We have to go check out Fin's new book! How very exciting to know a real published author kitty!

The Island Cats said...

Haha! Good luck with learning to read, Cory! But with cheese as a motivator, it may be quicker than you think!

Daisy said...

Cory, you are very, very smart!

Brian said...

Now we know why you're so darn smart!!! We ordered Fin's book and can't wait.

The Monkeys said...

We are excited about having Fin's book read to us too, but if you learn to read, maybe we can come over for storytime?

The Whiskeratti said...

Hmm.... we're sure your hoomin would luff to read to you. That's what they are for, right? To make everything wonderful for their kittehs?

Jacqueline said...

Where's your cheese, Cory?...Of course, you need it to read...We look forward to Fin's book too; we are going to order it straight away...Good luck with the cheese sweetheart...Happy week friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Busby and Raymond said...

It would be nice to learn to read, but we would rather learn to open the refrigerator. Happy Monday!

The Paw Relations said...

Wow! How cool is that? We want to learn to read too, especially if you get cheese.

Cat with a Garden said...

This is exciting news and we are ever so proud of Fin. And very eager to get our paws on her book too!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

We are hoping your bowl becomes cheese~filled furry soon!

Katnip Lounge said...

We are pacing around, waiting for Fin's book to arrive. We plan to have Mommy pop open a can of Fancy Feast for a snack and read the book to us, story-time style!

Sammy and Andy said...

Fin's book sounds like it will be a great read.

Cory, we agree....let your mom read it to you......that time spent together will be very special.

CCL Wendy said...

You are just too, too funny, Cory! I'm so glad for Fin's Mom, too and I already ordered a copy for our house. It's a honour to know a published author and her muse.

Books are good for all kinds of things, but I never thought they came with food dishes! That's a first. Of course, it's just a big tease if it's empty.

Fin said...

Oh my how nice of you to learn to read just for my book! I like to be read too though, get in some good scritches!

Tuck said...

Wow, Cory, if you learn to read you should give us all lessons! I told my mom she has got to order Fin's book!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yeah, learning to read is way to hard. We just let mom read to us, besides, we like lissening to her voice.

Baby Patches said...

OMC! If we could learns to reads den we can learns to types too right MOL hehehe

Eggciting to hears about Fin's book too!
